Keys To Success


As evident by the stats, Branford will rely heavily on their pitching

Their hitting must step it up against tougher competition than they faced this week

A total .214 avg shouldn't cut it this week, they'll need to raise that by nearly a hundred points for a shot at the title

Their top three pitchers are solid enough to get them into the championship round if the hitting comes around
